Welcome to Wasteland

Organised by Dale Hardiman and Tom Skeehan as Friends & Associates

(March 2019)

Welcome to Wasteland presented projects by creative disciplines – including architects, industrial designers, furniture makers and researchers – exploring the use of waste materials, offering visitors an insight into how leading practitioners are approaching Australian waste issues, not just with a sense of obligation but as an opportunity of crisis.

This event was part of Melbourne Design Week 2019 and organised by NGV in collaboration with Creative Victoria
